The world of Canadian letters was little prepared for the appearance of My Experiences at a Canadian Authors’ Convention, this often-hilarious account of how Stan Obodiac hitchhiked from Yorkton, Sask., to attend the CAA’s Convention in Winnipeg in 1957 and what befell him once he was there.
Here are deft descriptions of Pierre Berton, William Kilbourn, H. Gordon Green, Adele Wiseman, Lorne Pierce, and many other notables from the pantheon of Canadian literature. Obodiac went on to become publicity director of Maple Leaf Gardens.
In his foreword editor John Robert Colombo calls this work “a classic of Canadian literature.”
Included are ten photographs of the author.
